Bug#353171: dist-upgrade of unstable will remove kdebase

Package: kdebase
Version: 4:3.5.1-1
Severity: important

I regret that I can't be more specific, but for the past month, each time I attempt to perform "apt-get dist-upgrade" of my unstable configuration, I get a note that kate and kate-plugins will be removed.

In an attempt to circumvent this problem, I did an upgrade of kate and then an upgrade of kdebase. Now an attempt to dist-upgrade warns me that kaddressbook, kate-plugins, kdebase, and konqueror will all be removed, but kate will remain.

The upgrade of kdebase resulted in these packages being upgraded:

# apt-get install kdebase
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  kappfinder kcontrol kdebase-bin kdebase-data kdebase-kio-plugins kdepasswd kdeprint kdesktop kdm kfind khelpcenter kicker klipper
  kmenuedit konqueror konqueror-nsplugins konsole kpager kpersonalizer ksmserver ksplash ksysguard ksysguardd ktip kwin
  libavahi-compat-libdnssd1 libkonq4
Suggested packages:
  kdebase-doc-html efax hylafax-client mgetty-fax kicker-applets konq-plugins konq-speaker
Recommended packages:

The following NEW packages will be installed:

  konqueror-nsplugins konsole kpager kpersonalizer ksmserver ksplash ksysguardd ktip kwin libkonq4

I also executed

# apt-get install kdelibs-bin kdelibs-data kdelibs4c2a kedit
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Recommended packages:
The following packages will be upgraded:
  kdelibs-bin kdelibs-data kdelibs4c2a kedit

but the dist-upgrade still insists on uninstalling kdebase, etc.

This strikes me as a conflict or problem that's buried inside a KDE package. The last time I did a dist-upgrade, I was able to re-install kate and kate-plugins without any difficulty, but I shudder to think of trying to reinstall kdebase.

The complete list of packages that dist-upgrade will atttempt to install:

# apt-get -s dist-upgrade
